that were doing desk duty in the police department, bring them out. reverend jesse jackson's marching. reverend acry and the ministers. i think a lot of people that were concerned has escalated concerns. i think it's got to lead to the whole national drive that many of us are in around gun control. >> but here's what's so interesting. let's look at the city of chicago where this is a horrific really crime wave for the past year plus. this is a city that doesn't have gun shops. it does not have gun ranges. it has some of the toughest laws. so why is that not working? >> that is exactly why you need national laws. because in the city of chicago there are no gun shops. in the city of chicago there are strict gun laws. but 20% of the guns confiscated in chicago come from a gun shop right outside of chicago. so unless you have national laws, you are not going to be able to do it with just local municipal laws because you can't build walls around the city. 20% of the guns they find come from one gun shop, which is just a couple of miles outside of the city limits. if you had national legisl
first year, phil jackson's first year, 1999, he would be on the bus sitting behind us, flying on the plane, flying with us, that obviously he paid for. but he didn't say anything. he never sat there and told anybody this is wh you should be doing. he was just the owner. and he was a really, really good guy on top of it. >> so when you look at it, it really sounds like he revolutionized the sport by turning it into something bigger than the game itself. did you know that his health had been declining? do you remember maybe your last conversation with him? >> yeah. the last time i heard dr. buss, they talked about it in the past year, he wasn't doing well. friend of mine named bonnie gelus would let me know what was going on with dr. buss. i would see his driver periodically here in los angeles. but he was to himself, like probably we don't even know what cancer it was right now, undisclosed, because dr. buss was private but public person at the same time. i went there at his -- getting his star on hollywood, i thought that was cool that the owner of a basketball team is on the
to death. senior national correspondent john roberts live in jackson, georgia, with more. john? >> reporter: good afternoon to you. certainly, the crimes were heinous, he shot his girlfriend 11 times to kill her and then in 1990 bludgeoned that former inmate to death with a board studded with nails. his attorneys argued that he was suffering from mental retardation and should not receive the death penalty. three doctors who were hired by the state disagreed with that saying he was not mentally retarded and during their interviews they thought perhaps he was even faking it. since then, though, those same three doctors have said they were wrong. one of them in an affidavit saying: my judgment that mr. hill did not meet the criteria for mild mental retardation was in error, going on to say that hill has an iq of about 70. back in 2002 the superior court ruled that it was a violation of the eighth amendment, unconstitutional, to put a mentally retarded person to death, and since then many people have come to hill's defense, including the family of his victim that he killed back in 1990, and for

's pining for the carter days. and certainly i mean he didn't control his own party. he had scoop jackson, democrats, hawks, abandoned carter and ted kennedy liberals abandoning him. what we can do is start looking at what it was like in his one term. just like we'll have a revision with president 41. carter did some great things in alaska and our national parks service. carter doubled the size of the national parks. and he saved all these great wilderness areas. well, it may not seem that big to you now. about 50 years from now when the rain forests are dead and so much of the world has been in ruin, saving all these bits of wild america will look like a greater achievement. only theodore roosevelt and fdr was a better conservation president than jimmy carter. >> how much would pop culture have an impact on some revisionism as far as jimmy carter is concerned? for example, the film argo? >> i think it's helpful because it's put -- it shows that film. i think the carter administration was trying desperately to get rid of those hostages. they were always between a rock and a hard place. wh

for her. she had taken the stage with tim mcgraw and alan jackson and george strait, the song you heard, i could go on and on of the and then has this huge fall from grace and her social life really messes up her success. how does that happen to someone? >> well, therein is this vulnerability. when you're talking about the potential of major depression being present, that deprives people of rational thought. it's very close to being delusional, where your kids don't seem to rate, your cherished pet, her dog, whose life she apparently took before her own, doesn't seem to rate. nothing seems like it can change. that's the deep blackness that encircles you when you're in the midst of the worst kind of major depression and the reason why people really need time to be reached when they're hospitalized. you can't turn them around in 48 hours. >> peter: when we hear this, we feel so helpless in so many ways. we say, this was a talented woman, but you look at this legacy that she left in terms of arrests and pain killers and alcohol and even a suicide attempt in 2005. people say, can that happen i
